Nice! I've got the current recording of course but a new one will be very welcome.

In addition, her opera "Fete Galante" is due for release before long from Retrospect Opera. That means three of her six operas are available in professional recordings. We might be waiting a while for the other three though.

All this is excellent news and gives me hope that someone will record The Prison, a really important piece by this composer.
